congrats?


#3

You gonna take it? It sounds like a good opportunity. 50K - 60K should go pretty far in Florida. Good luck.


#4

Where are the requirements? like education, experience, etc?


#5

Where are the requirements? like education, experience, etc?


#6

No, I live in NY, not leaving, and earn more than this.

I posted it for those who might be in Florida and want this job.


#7

It didn't mention requirements.

I get a lot of job postings. If you people appreciate I post them, then I'll continue.


#8

Also, if I had interest in applying or accepting or if I got it, I don't think I'd be sharing here. :wink:


#9

If you come across in training jobs in Ohio let me know, homie!


#10

I appreciate it, even though I'll PROBABLY never apply to any of them. Just finished a degree in Kinesiology so I'm interested to see job opportunities that are at least sort of related to the field, in case my current plan doesn't work out. I'm sure there's gotta be others interested on this site, even if they don't post.


#11

Take it from a fellow Kin grad, there isn't that much you can do with just a kinesiology degree. It's a great jumping board to physio, chiropractic, strength coaching, nutrition, etc, but on it's own it's not worth that much. I used to see job postings for "Kinesiologist" which basically makes you the gopher of a physiotherapist, or you could try for pharma/medical sales (which is what I did), but not all that much else. Will you be pursuing further education?

(out of curiosity, where'd you graduate...Guelph? Waterloo?)


#12

Aside from self employment or entrepreneurship in sports nutrition (requires NO degree), in nearly every case, employment in sports nutrition requires a BS and/or MS in nutrition and/or RD, and in some cases, some type of combination of exercise physiology and nutrition education and training.

Regarding kinesiology, I've seen quite a few clinical positions at hospitals in NYC. St. Luke's hospital in NYC is hiring (saw it on Indeed.com).

What's funny is that alhough I'm not the most moral person on here, nor am I Mr. Good Samaritan, I like helping people out like this but at the same time get pinned as some guy trying to pull others down (see Sacrifice versus Reward thread).

Interesting.


#13

Hiring for "kinesiologists"? Maybe the term has more meaning in the states. In Ontario you can put C.K (Certified Kinesiologist) after your name by mailing $150 to the kinesiology board...no test, no practicum...nothing. They send you a quarterly newsletter and a certificate, and that's about it

And please keep posting interesting job links.


#14

My mom works at a Physio clinic in Scarborough (Toronto). Kins' make $17/hour. Brutal.


#15

Yep, that's about the going rate. Kin grads usually have all sorts of information and facts stored in their brains, and very little practical, employable experience. I can't think of a reason a physio would even bother having one on staff, aside from fetching ice tape and therapy balls...unless it's some sort of internship or training program.

you all depress me.

I take it you're a kin? You can still do a lot of different things, if you're willing to do 1-2 years more school...

-Ergonomics: Very good money and job security, increasing demand.
-Prosthetics/Orthotics: Another 2 years of school. Probably one of the most rewarding career fields I can think of
-Dietician/Nutritionist: Ask Bricknyce about this...
-Chiropody: Can make great money, but your salary depends on how many pairs of custom orthotics you can sell, and you have to deal with some sick shit like diabetic foot debridement...
-Chiropractic: In Canada I wouldn't go anywhere near this, don't know if it's any better in the states...
-Occupational Therapy: Increasing demand, not that hard to get into OT school, very worthwhile career

thanks for the advice! I am about to graduate in December with a kin degree, i was planning on taking a year off to see what kind of jobs were available before applying to grad school, but if there are no worthwhile jobs with only a BS, maybe i should be thinking about grad school a little sooner?
